Cynthia’s focus came early – during law school, she worked as a legal secretary and paralegal for several midsize and large firms in Southern California. Electing not to pursue a career as an attorney, Cynthia recognized her interest and talent in law firm management.  

After law school, she worked as Office Manager for midsize law firms in Northern and Southern California where she was responsible for all aspects of the firm’ s daily operations. From human resource management and the development of the firms’ policy and procedure/employee handbooks, to the growth office relocation and build out, Cynthia worked unselfishly with pride and dedication leading that firm to great successes.

In 2003, Cynthia decided to take her work experience and a new certification in Law Firm Management, together with her entrepreneurial spirit and determination to assist other small firms and companies grow and obtain strategic goals, and founded PLMC & Associates.

Cynthia is a Six Sigma Champion Certified with a  White  Belt in Lean Six Sigma and a Six Sigma Green Belt. She is a member of the American Bar Association, Law Practice Management Division, Associate Editor of the ABA LP Magazine, Co-Chair Person of ABA Law Practice Division Lawyer Leadership and Management Committee, and a board member of ABA GPSolo Magazine as well as the GLA ALA Magazine Board.  She frequently speaks and coaches firms  on best practices in office administration and management.
